Cooling Water Monitoring Applications

    Boiler Water Testing / Cooling Tower Water Testing

    Boilers and cooling towers share two major water related problems: deposits and corrosion. As steam is generated by a boiler or water evaporating from a cooling tower, dissolved minerals are left behind, increasing the concentration of these minerals. Additional minerals are introduced via the water added to makeup the water lost to steam/evaporation. Eventually, the minerals reach a level (or cycle) of concentration that will cause either loss of efficiency due to scale or damage from corrosion. This level can be determined by the Ryznar or Langlier indices and correlated to a conductivity or TDS range. Most people recognize problems associated with corrosion. Effects from scale deposits, however, are equally important. For example, as little as 1/8` of scale can reduce the efficiency of a boiler by 18% or a cooling tower heat exchanger by 40%!

    Monitoring oil in power plant cooling water

    The TD-4100 utilizes a non-fouling, non-contact flow cell which requires little to no maintenance, and uses fluorescence technology to accurately detect oil in water from low ppb to high ppm. For this application, the TD-4100 monitors oil in water at 1 to 5 ppm and signals an operator with an alarm when the concentration exceeds the high alarm relay set-point.

    Monitoring of phenol in water

    A plant located in the eastern United States manufactures phenolic resin for applications in plastics molding. This plant uses well water for cooling its reaction process and then discharges the water into a local creek.

    Monitoring Once Through Cooling Water

    Fluorescence-based oil in water monitors from Turner Designs Hydrocarbon Instruments have been used extensively in industrial water processes for more than 20 years. These low maintenance fluorescence monitors have no significant measurement disturbance from water turbidity or naturally occurring organics in the water. Oil in water monitors can help detect and prevent major oil spills that may cause significant environmental damage and regulatory compliance infractions.

  • Water Monitoring and Flow Measurement Systems for Hydrology

    In recent years acoustic flow measurement and flow metering has established itself as the standard method for measurement in many hydrological stations but is also used as the basis for various applications, for example for flood protection and flood forecasting. Ultrasonic flow meters are also used in hydro-engineering constructions. With this almost contact free technology data can be recorded continuously and it provides 24/7 monitoring. Such flow monitoring is particularly important in waterways used for shipping, transportation, irrigation, drainage and for cooling water extraction of power plants. A further important use of transit-time open channel flow meters is the transportation of water used for the supply of drinking water. Here the focus lies on detecting the flow rate of water loss at an early stage as it is sometimes difficult to detect small leakages.

  • Instrumentation technologies for refineries

    The petroleum refining industry uses a wide range of processes, from separation, petroleum conversion, and petroleum treatment to waste water management. Each of these processes has its own challenges and all are made more complex by the variety of products and contaminants in the process.  Two key areas, from the water management perspective, are cooling water and waste water treatment.
